Rawlings shuts office over COVID-19 fears

Former President JJ Rawlings has shut down his office in Accra in the wake of COVID-19 spread in Ghana.

A statement by the former President said the move is to protect his staff and visitors.

“The office of His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings, former President of the Republic, wishes to announce the immediate closure of the office.

“The closure is due to the unfortunate spread of the Covid-19 virus. The decision which is aimed at protecting staff and potential visitors will be reviewed after two weeks.

“The former President once again urges all Ghanaians to be mindful of their personal discipline and care as we work to combat the disease. He calls on all to wear their masks, maintain appropriate social distancing, cough etiquette and general hygiene protocols,” the statement said.

Some state organisations including the Finance Ministry, BOST and COCOBOD have already shut down over the virus.
